One of my favourite antiques is an 1890 Singer Sewing machine which I have had for a while. It’s a really beautiful piece and in very good condition condsidering it’s age. as a big fan of sewing I can really appreciate the beauty of this sewing machine and I love to think of all the wonderful things that it must have made over the last 123 years. Although there are a couple of small bits missing it will actually still sew which I find amazing.
It has its original cover which still has the Singer logo in gold which is beautiful. The sewing machine was easy to date as they all have a serial number.
I had always planned to have a sewing room one day and have some old sewing machines as display items. However the reality of living in Greater London means I will never have a house big enough for a sewing room and as such the couple of old sewing machines I have just been gathering dust in the loft. So with a slightly heavy heart I have decided to sell them. I have visions of them going to a new home to be lovingly restored and used for many years to come!
I wanted to share these pictures so you can see just how beautiful it is…
